My big photo project.
Many of you have known me since I started with my photography a while back, and have cheered me on as I tried to self teach myself, sharing a few pics along the way. So I just thought I'd share a small bit of news that made me feel pretty happy, and very thankful this weekend.
I had been working on a really big project that took quite a while to get ready. I was invited to hang some of my photos in a local store with a neighbor of mine who is also selling some of her crafts there. It took quite a while to pick out the ones I wanted to hang, and then to research, and learn how to frame correctly since I wanted to make sure everything was the best quality.
Well, I finally hung the finished products in the store on Oct. 7th, and was just informed on Friday that I had already made my first big sale that same week I hung everything!! It was a big confidence boost for me, as I was feeling very unsure this was even going to work out after all the time and $$$ I had put into this project. So now the plan is to add in some fine art greeting cards, and I'm going to attempt to squeeze in a 2012 calendar IF I can get it done. I am so happy this has turned out good, and very thankful to have such a supportive hubby to help me out along the way!
